KWMU Booster Group Organizes Under Name Ripped from RFT Headline
|Young Friends of KWMU|
Could that be "Radio Active" as in the headline of a May 2008 RFT investigation into KWMU that ultimately led to the firing of the station's general manager Patty Wente?
The answer, apparently, is yes. Radio Active is the nickname of the new Young Friends of KWMU organization.

I tried calling Young Friends but couldn't get anyone on the phone. My question is this: Is it just coincidence that the group shares the same name of the RFT story, or did Young Friends so despise Wente that they named their group in honor of her fall?
